I shoot my 870, with 3in Hevi-metal #2 for duck and BBB for geese. with a Carlson's extended MOD.

talked to the parents and I am getting a Browning Maxus for a christmas/ graduating high school gift this year. so I will be shooting my Maxus with the same loads for late duck and goose season.

Early in the season when there are lots of teal, I use a skeet choke and 2-3/4" #4's. Later in the season when its mostly big ducks and theres a chance at a goose, I use a improved cylinder choke with 3" #2's.

Benelli Nova and i usually use 3 inch 2 shot or 3 inch bb shot. I like black clouds but usually go with the cheapest i can get my hands on.

I use a SBE 2 and shoot a modified choke and Winchester HV Xperts 3inch #4s early season and on puddlers and #2s on divers and geese 1550fps seem to do the job normally. Most birds i shoot at die with those rounds

I use a benelli super vinci. Early season i lie blackcloud 3 inch number 4 and later in the season, i like 3 1/2 inch 2 shot. I have only been shooting 31/2 inch shells for one season, but in my gun there worth it because my benelli does such a good job of recoil reduction. By the way, im 14 and love 31/2 shells/

better penetrstion/ killing power at farther ranges, and also doubles as an excellent goose load.

My daughter shoot a Remington 870 Compact Jr 20 gauge. Load wise, for now, she is shooting Hevi Shot Classic Doubles in 3" #4's. Great hard hitting shell but easy on the shoulder for the young ones.

Changed everything since last post. I patterened my gun with steel.
Found that at 40 yards...
#2 shot through full choke patterns best at that range.
IC was very poor and modified was a little better.
Go figure...
